Transparency and Accountability Initiative Photo Grant

Submissions Close 13.1 2020. Competition seeks to promote conversation around transparency and accountability issues and provide a space for photographers and artists to help bring these concepts to life.

Open to professional and amateur photographers of any nationality aged 18 and older. Photographers are not constrained in what they submit, but potential themes might include manifestations of transparency and accountability in how citizens interact with government, use of public resources, sharing and use of data, integrity of companies and governments.

A single prize will be awarded by a panel of Judges that includes a professional photographer, a seasoned photojournalist, and expert in the Transparency, Accountability, and Participation (TAP) space. The winner will be announced on 7 February 2020 and will receive a work grant of US$8,000 to carry a photographic project to produce at least 30 photographs related to the themes of government and corporate transparency and accountability. The project is expected to begin on February 14 and completed by May 15, 2020.

Transparency and Accountability Initiative is a collaborative of funders committed to open government, citizen engagement and collective action for the public good.
